I haven’t played a live show since some time in December. I think it’s safe to say it’s been about a month. I love playing shows. It’s unlike anything else I’ve ever experienced. On the one hand, it’s almost like I’m in my own little world when I’m performing. I often clothes my eyes and get lost in the emotion of the song. On the other hand, I love connecting with the audience, whether it’s eye contact during a song, or having a conversation with them from the stage between songs.

Usually from about November through March of the next year, I don’t book any shows. I use that time to write new songs, record them, plan for the coming year, and sometimes, just take a break.

I never really think of the new year as “starting over.” I still have projects left from last year that didn’t get finished. I can’t very well just leave them and start new projects. Well, I guess I do that anyway, but I still like to get things finished once I start them.
